in that manner. >> reporter: they also criticized her for failing to fire four officers involved in a 2018 shooting that left joseph pollack dead. do you feel like the mayor turned on you? she was oe of your biggest supporters. >> i was surprised and disappointed in her, yes. i was disappointed. > reporter: why? >> i believed her. >> reporter: unlike those who fired her, kirkpatrick believed she had made significant progress toward complying with the federal monitor's goals, including violence reduction and hiring more women and minority officers. kirkpatrick told us she will ask the u.s. department of justice to investigate, and she's considering legal action against the city. abc 7 news has learned the base f -- basis for her legal claim may be alleged retaliation for her refusal to grant special favors to at least one member of the police commission.

the stations. looking around here, this looks a lot better than it did a year ago. a year ago there were people openly using drugs a year ago. what have you done? >> we have really focused on the station's first appearance. >> why wasn't is cleaned before? it seems like a no-brainer, go out and clean the station. >> i think -- >> it wasn't a priority. >> i don't think so, phil. i think we always were trying to keep the stations clean. we had to double down with the challenges. some of the challenges from the bay area, you know, the homelessness and some of the mental illness, some of that started to creep into our system, and we weren't paying attention to that, that i'll give you. we've regrouped now, and i can walk you through civic and it's darn clean. >> we've got one guy here playing a mandolin, trying to make a couple bucks, a couple panhandlers, but i got to say all in all, this hallway is a lot cleaner than it was a year ago. a year ago there were people
6:14 pm
lined up here whacked out of their skulls on drugs. >> there isn't a piece of garbage debris in the entire hallway compared to what it was before. >> how did we do that? how many cops do we have now patrolling this area? >> we have a station post here, but it really has been a partnership with the city of san francisco and b.a.r.t. pd. what you want is folks walking throughout the system, you know, walking the hall, making sure there's no trouble, go do something else, and walk back again so you and i can't set up camp here. it's that roving presence that keeps folks safe and keeps the system nice and clean. >> when you first saw the photos of what was going on here, what was your reaction? >> it was heartbreaking, phil. for me, heartbreaking because of how important i think b.a.r.t. is to the bay area. and i tell my staff that i bleed b.a.r.t. blood. you know, that i have so much vested in b.a.r.t., i want
6:15 pm
b.a.r.t. to succeed, and when i saw that, it was disheartening. it was very troubling for me as one of the leaders of b.a.r.t. at the time. >> why did it take so long for b.a.r.t. to react? >> again, i think that was maybe at the start of this epidemic that the bay area is facing right now, that we all have got to come together to try to solve the homelessness crisis. but that was right at the beginning, phil. that was, what, 18 months ago, two years ago, that this was at the peak? >> there is a saying, i hear it all the time. b.a.r.t. is reflective of the bay area. whatever problems or anything you have on the streets, you're going to see them on b.a.r.t. the fact is also that people expect, when they go into b.a.r.t., that that trouble is not going to be there, that it's going to be safe. >> that's right. >> they know you'll get them there on time, but they want it safe. >> i want it safe. i can't agree more. the trouble should stop, whatever the trouble, at the gates. >> and we are posting all of our b.a.r.t. week stories to our
6:16 pm
website, abc7news.com and to our abc 7 news app. we have a place where you can ask your b.a.r.t. questions and we will try to get you some answers. >> we will, indeed, and it will be there all week long. in the meantime, it looks like we'll have nice weather for b.a.r.t. week, because so far no rain. >> here's a live look at doppler 7. we have clear skies across the bay area right now after a very mild to warm day. a view, sort of, of the exploratorium camera looking out over the bay. it is currently 58 in san francisco, 68 in oakland, 72 in redwood city and 54 in pacifica. it's 62 degrees in santa rosa, petaluma 59, napa 61, fairfield 64, concord 67. pretty mild just about everywhere. these are our forecast features. we'll have clear skies overnight
6:17 pm
except for maybe a patch or two of fog in the hills. we'll have more warm and sunny days coming our way through friday. and no rain is likely to fall in the bay area before march 1st, but that's only a few days away now. looking over the embarcadero from our rooftop camera, we have had no measurable rainfall here in the bay ar, and that includes san francisco which, by the way, last year in february had nearly eight inches of rain. that's here in the city. the highest rainfall total in the month of february ever in san francisco was back in 1998, almost 15 inches of rain fell that february, but this year looks like we're going to have a completely dry month. it may not last very long, though. we're looking at our projection for rainfall totals on march 1st, which is just six days away now. san francisco may pick up about .400 of an inch of rain
6:18 pm
because there is a system approaching us, and it might bring some rainfall. follow this forecast animation beginning at 2:00 p.m. on saturday. notice rain approaching the coastline, but march 1st, sunday morning, you'll see the rain has not yet arrived, so we will probably have completed the entire month of february without any measurable rainfall. the rain is likely to move in sometime sunday morning, but it doesn't look like it will lot of rain, maybe just a couple hundr hundredths of an inch. temperatures tomorrow in the mid-40s. look for sunny to mild conditions once again. we'll see mild at 66 in half moon bay, 74, 75 degrees at san jose and morgan hill. the inland east bay, mid-70s in all locations. up in the north bay tomorrow, we'll probably see high temperatures around 80 degrees, and santa rosa and cloverdale,
6:19 pm
it is indeed a much more warmer day than average. mostly sunny skies and mild to warm weather through friday. finally on saturday, some clouds move in, it becomes much cooler. in fact, high temperatures from friday to saturday will drop about 10 or 12 degrees in many locations. sunday there is our next chance of rain. it doesn't look like it will amount to much, but we'll cheer its arrival. >> let's have a parade. >> is it going to rain on your parade? >> we're hoping. thanks, spencer. when we heard them yelling out "help," we thought it must be someone else. sdp >> but it turned out t

as we've mentioned, we're devoting this week of our building a better bay area coverage to b.a.r.t. >> why do you take b.a.r.t. or why do you decide not to take b.a.r.t. as commuters scramble for the best way to get around the bay area, cost really is a factor. >> it's true, and it goes up all the time. he did a little comparison shopping. >> that's one way of putting it. we asked what they pay every day to get to work and back. it turns out b.a.r.t. is the
6:44 pm
most cost efficient, but depending on how close you live to a station, not always. we looked at one east bay commuter and the four options she considered. the results, well, they may surprise you. >> i travel from alameda to san francisco, and i think the best way to commute is -- >> what is the best way? lydia tom has several options for her daily commute from alameda to downtown san francisco and back home again. she knows which one she likes. >> it's very easy to get there and back. >> reporter: but which is the most cost effective? we did the math. >> i probably would not be able to carpool. >> reporter: she could drive which a lot of commuters feel gives them the most flexibility. or does it? >> i would probably lose at least an hour to get through the bay bridge, then drive into the financial district where i work. >> reporter: not only would she be mired in traffic, it would be expensive. according to the irs' mileage
6:45 pm
allowance, it costs about 58 cents per mile to drive a car. multiply that by 26 miles round trip for lydia. it would cost $15.08 per day for gas and maintenance. up it with the bridge toll and she's up to 22 bucks a day. we did find a $20 all-day flat rate parking for early birds. add it to that total, and it brings her daily total to $42 a day. >> it's too expensive. and i wouldn't do it. >> what about ab transit? from alameda to san francisco is $12 round trip. she would get dropped off at the transit center a half mile from her work. economical, but what about b.a.r.t.? >> i would first have to get to b.a.r.t. from my house. >> reporter: here's the breakdown. she could drive four miles to the closest b.a.r.t. station,
6:46 pm
the one at fruitvale, and park all day in a reserved space for $6. she could then take b.a.r.t. to embarcadero for $8.40 round trip, factoring in $4.80 for mileage and her b.a.r.t. cost would be $19.20. it's a little more than a bus, a lot less than driving. but her cheapest option is also her favorite. she's heading there now. >> definitely the ferry. >> reporter: lydia can ride the ferry for $10.80 round trip. parking at alameda is free, but she's near both sides of the bay. >> when it's a nice day, you can go outside and see the skyline in the background while you're going home. i love it. >> reporter: with the sun setting behind her, traffic jams above her, she's floating peacefully home. so here's a comparison for lydia. driving is by far the most
6:47 pm
expensive at $42 per day. b.a.r.t. costs less than half that at $19.20. ac transit costs $12, and the ferry was the most economical at $10.80 round trip. i posted links on abc 7.com so you can find the cheapest way for your commute. by the way, let me know what you find out. >> that's really interesting. >> i want to hear from you even if it's not about a commute. the 7 on your side hotline is open from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. you can also reach me on my facebook page and >> shethe ferry is a sweet ride. spencer? weav've been talking a lot about our rainfall deficit in the bay area, but the sierra snowpack is only at 50% average
6:48 pm
